Current Process Documentation

The Edmonds Community College ctcLink project team visited departments throughout the campus to document current business processes in preparation for the statewide software conversion to PeopleSoft /ctcLink. The team focused on processes that use the Legacy system (CEI Plus) and supporting software systems and databases.

Common Process Workshops

The Common Process Workshop initiative was developed by a core team of Project Managers from several different colleges, including Edmonds. The goal of common process development is to reach agreement on best-practice ctcLink processes and configurations. They are designed to create a better business process, and reduce variability. This will in turn improve troubleshooting, training, testing and data quality resulting in improved conversion and sustained success. There are about 60 processes that have been identified for a 3-day Common Process Workshop, over 25 of which have been completed. Edmonds Tritons have a 100% attendance record with this initiative.
